Farmers Markets in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam — Plus, What Vendors are Where

0

Just a few years ago, you had to go out of your way to shop for locally grown vegetables, humanely raised meat and fresh fish from local waters.

This week, you shouldn’t have any problem whatsoever.

More than 40 farmers markets are open throughout the Lower Hudson Valley, and hundreds of vendors are bringing produce at its peak (or meat at its prime or flowers at their freshest) to a parking lot near you. There’s a market on almost every day of the week — some twice a week — and in almost every corner of our three counties.

At many, you’ll find familiar faces and products: Bread Alone, the artisanal bread maker from Boiceville, N.Y., is at 16 different markets; the Orchards of Concklin, an apple farm in Pomona that has been around since 1712, is at six. But each market has unique vendors, too. Only at Pleasantville, for example, can you find Rainbeau Ridge goat cheese. And only at the new market at PepsiCo in Purchase can you get Hudson Valley Fresh sour cream, which is 40 percent cream rather than the 10 percent to 15 percent that’s in most of our sour creams.

And it’s easier than ever before to find fresh fish (Pura Vida Fisheries is at Palisades, Pleasantville, Cold Spring, Irvington and Hastings-on-Hudson; Plates is in Larchmont) and hormone-free, grass-fed beef (almost every market has at least one vendor). Even prepared-food vendors, such as True Foods (Nyack and Hastings) and Block Factory Tamales (Cold Spring) have gone local, using seasonal food from farmers.

This year, three new markets have opened: Valley Cottage in Rockland (plus, Palisades extends into summer for the first time); Armonk (which goes by North Castle in our listings); and Purchase (at PepsiCo) in Westchester.

But there’s something new to explore at all the markets. Check out our list below — and have fun shopping local, all summer long.

This list was reported and written by Bill Cary, Karen Croke, Liz Johnson, Peter D. Kramer, Linda Lombroso, Mary Lynn Mitcham, Heather Salerno and Chris Serico. If your favorite market was not listed, please e-mail me son at ewjohnsonATlohud.com.

The list, by date, and with all the vendors, after the jump.
